Hey, first of all, I’d like to say I enjoy working in Cubase since looong time which gets even better and better with each update more than any other DAW I used.
My feature request is about easy and fast sound browsing and controls-mapping. The Steinberg VST instruments like HALion Sonic 3, Retrologue, Padshop, Groove Agent are really great and most presets are fantastic sounding.
Cubase has already native support for the NI Komplete Kontrol keyboards. I’d love to see Steinberg Instruments NKS-ready inside Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol. This would allow fast browsing from the NI Keyboards and also include the super easy hands-on-automation with pre-mapped controls for the 8 encoders for every instrument.
Imo this would be a great addition to the build-in Cubase Quick Controls. Alternatively the Cubase Media Bay pre-listen function could be made sample-based instead of loading up the patch each time for preview of VST instruments.
There is the possibility to do it yourself the NKS configuration with sound sample, it is not very complicated but it can take a lot of time especially with Halion Sonic which has thousands of presets.
Anyway, when you load a preset into Komplete Kontrol, whether from N.I or another brand with the NKS and sound sample, when you modify this sound and save it as a user preset, you lose this sound sample. Hence the importance of being able to create them yourself.
I have the same folders listed (except C:\Program File\Vstplugins\Retrologue), but it doesn’t detect any Steinberg products.
I have the SE versions of Halion and GA of Cubase 12 Pro, maybe it only detects the Standalone versions?
I tried to insert other Steinberg folders but without success.
